Sure it is! Parking slots might be available around the nearby streets, but I guess 50 cars might create instant mayhem. Possible alternative would be carpool. 10 cars x 5 people would be sensible. I know it's a wishful thinking and everyone is eager to see each others car

Keep us updated regarding the schedule for other cities (read Delhi). It would be worth attending this.

Registrations closed And we're over capacity in 48 hours of putting this thread up.

I hope all of you learn from Ford's DSFL program, and find it informative. Do put up a detailed report for the rest of us.

Here's to safe driving.

Ford india is also having a DSFL India tour in 5 cities starting in Bangalore and then moving to Mumbai, Delhi, Chandigarh and Chennai every week.
Oy! How about including GOA in the schedule? Paradise has its devils posing as drivers here! HELP FORD! You'd make many Goan Pedestrians a happier lot!

Just saw the email from GTO. I am in

Parking on St.Marks road might be a problem. I guess, I can park in UB City and walk to the venue.

Nice. With all respect to TBHP organisers - But why are such programs only targeted at moneyed English speaking consumers? As if the Aam Junta in India like cab drivers and Bus/truck drivers and rickshaw wallahs speak English. In fact I am dead certain they are not welcome at such events. This is all about self marketing - getting eyeballs with some well placed PR articles in magazines and media after its over.


If the corporates are serious they should organize such events at RTOs for all DL applicants in collaboration with RTO staff on a weekly basis (NGO ground worker style). Time for them to put the money where it matters rather than just make appropriate noises with some clever marketing strategy as a hidden motive. They will probably ask participants to fill-in a questionnaire to judge the number of prospective Ford customers.

I am posting this so that somebody can volunteer to ask this embarrassing question in the Q&A tomorrow. Lets watch how they fumble and squirm before responding with a "we'll get back to you on that one ..."

ALL THE BEST for the Meet, i hope you guys enjoy the session and post some memorable pictures of the meet @ India Garage. According to me driving skills needs to be updated every day, since new challenges emerge with increasing traffic, signalling and new technology emerging.

I am in too. Got the confirmation last night.

Since parking will be a definite problem, I was also thinking of carpool.
Anyone going from East Bangalore - Banaswadi, Kammanahalli, Kalyan nagar, etc. ?

We all know what we must do (on the road) But do we do what we already know?

I believe these trainings help in brushing up long forgotten basics alongwith giving us simple techniques to share the road in a better way.
